My neighbor called me this morning to give me a report from Sanilac County.

He's retired and watches over my place, as I live 100 miles away.

He said he started driving back roads around various sections starting at 5:30 this morning and has put over 100 miles on his truck (so far). He states that he has seen only two vehicles on the side of the road that would appear to be a "Hunter's Car/Truck".

Probably see more on the weekend but the first day it appears to be slow--at least in Sanilac County.

I've talked to quite a few people who know nothing about the early anterless season. I know my truck is packed ready to go at 4:01pm today. I teach in a really rural area and i have yet to hear any shots...

I traveled from Indian River to Alpena this morning and took the back roads with out seeing a single hunter. Perhaps this weekend will be busy, with bear, bird, and deer all going on.

Was out this morning for just a couple hours in Washtenaw County. Heard 3 shots. Beautiful morning to be in the woods - but it's wierd to be deer hunting while it's still summer. I kicked up a couple in the dark on the in but didn't see anything from my stand.

Heard a few shots this morning in Barry. One was really early though, before light. Saw a bunch on my way to the spot in the car, but none in the woods. It was an awesome sunrize!:coolgleam

I'm sure I'll be corrected but I thought this was FIREARMS only.
You're wrong. Archery hunters are supposed to wear hunter orange. No difference using your bow today or during the firearm season Nov.15-30th.

Cass County this AM. Saw no deer. Heard two shots - one to the SW, one to the SE. Isn't that how it always happens:sad:

Did have four turkeys right under my stand - three jakes and one long beard. In a few more weeks, that LB might become T'giving dinner:evil:

Beautiful morning - glad to get to sit for a few hours.

I might be wrong but I thought it was only for the lower half of the state??
